“I am pleased to announce a number of significant appointments within the RBC Asset Management Canadian equity team,” said Dan Chornous, chief investment officer, RBC Asset Management Inc. “These announcements reflect our desire to take full advantage of the depth of talent and effective investment process that has been at the core of our solid investment returns and strong growth over the past half decade.
